's "new york times" that has a lot of people buzzing suggesting that detroit's neighbors are currently being hurt by the woes of motown. cities, counties and other local governments in michigan are getting a cold shoulder in the municipal bond market. just two weeks after detroit declared bankruptcy, borrowing costs are up around the state. the latest casualty, yesterday's saginaw county announced it was delaying a $60 million bond sale that was planned for today. gentlemen, this is the concern that so many people have been wo worried about, this would have ripple effects through michigan and if a federal court approves this, throughout the rest of the country. >> the question for me at least is the answer that the state is supposed to get involved in a more meaningful way, the federal government? we talked about are you supposed to have a bailout? we know that there is going to be implications from doing this. but -- >> yes, but particular -- >> the flip side is a dangerous game too. >> but particular implications because the bond holders are being put at the back of the line with eve
